Volunteering

Volunteers form an important part of Milton Keynes University Hospital.

Our highly committed army of volunteers can be found in all areas of the hospital. Volunteering allows people to give something back to their local community. All for as little as three hours a week. It is a great way to meet new people, make new friends and learn new skills.

The Trust recognises the importance of those who volunteer. We have in excess of 200 volunteers across our services including League of Friends, Hospital Radio, Chaplaincy and Community Volunteers.

As a volunteer you will help provide support to wards. They help to feed patients, support admin roles and meet and greet visitors. All voluntary positions have a thorough job description and we’ll work with you to make sure you’re comfortable in your role. All we need from you is regular attendance and a willingness to complete mandatory training.

Apply to become a volunteer

MKUH offers volunteering to those over the age of 18 and welcomes applications from volunteers who are able to offer a minimum of three hours a week for at least six months.

Our recruitment process is as follows:

  • Complete an application form
  • Come for an interview and provide us with references
  • Undertake an occupational health check
  • Have a Disclosure and Barring Service check (formally known as CRB)

We have opportunities in both clinical and nonclinical areas – our current vacancies are advertised through Volunteer Connect.

Currently we are in need of volunteers who are available between 09:30 to 16:30, Monday to Friday.

By becoming a volunteer at Milton Keynes University Hospital, you can make a real difference to our patients and their relatives.
